PRG tops in

Paul Roos Gymnasium once again secured the boy’s title with 790 points in the annual Spur Schools Mountain Biking League (SSMTBL) over the past weekend at the Wagpos High school in North West.

A total of 87 schools competed for the various national SSMTBL championship titles. After a day of fiercely contested racing that saw 536 riders from 11 provinces and regions as well as Zambia and Namibia competing in the inter-schools competition, it was Garsfontein High School who walked off with the mixed team trophy logging 730 points. Menlo Park High School claimed the girl’s trophy with 450 points and Paul Roos Gymnasium once again secured the boy’s title with 790 points.

The purpose-built Olympic style cross-country course at Wagpos High School is more undulating and technical than previous years. Measuring 4,2 km with 85 m elevation per lap, the first half of the course is tight and technical with two challenging climbs, while the second half and finish area are flatter, which suits the power rider. A flow line section with jumps proved very popular with the riders and figure-of-8 design meant that the riders returned to the finish area, which was great for spectators.

Local results included: Youth Men 15: Henning Venter (2nd, PRG, 0:49:05), Youth Men 16: Aiden Penfold (2nd PRG 0:48:31),

Sub-Juniors Girls: Olivia Penfold (3rd, Rhenish Girls’ High, 0:30:26) and Junior girls: Kira Böhm (2nd, Rhenish Girls’ High, 0:27:12).
